With Amazon Web Services (AWS) continuing to be the current gold standard of data management platforms — and with data management being a key cog in the development of the IoT's commercial and industrial viability — there is sure to be plenty of competition in not only the manufacturing of smart devices but in shoring up all those endpoints.
We've simply never seen anything within the enterprise space grow to scale as quickly as the IoT has thus far. And it's because of the lightning pace of adoption that security and implementation will become essential to the further success of how we integrate the IoT into our daily business lives. Whether that comes in better analytic capacities, industrial advances (such as making machines working more efficiently), or in wearable technology that lets us know the state of our personal health — the race to see how far we can take the IoT in 2016 has already begun.
With 2015 practically in the rearview mirror, it's time to gear up for 2016 and the different business verticals that you'll need to fulfill as the year progresses.

Here are four hot trends Himanshu Sareen, CEO at Icreon Tech, has identified for the coming year.
